The amendment to defund Planned Parenthood has passed in the U.S. House of Representatives:
The House has approved a Republican proposal to block federal aid for Planned Parenthood.
The 240-185 vote on Friday is a victory for anti-abortion forces led by Indiana GOP Rep. Mike Pence. He says taxpayer money should not go to groups that provide or promote abortion.
The Senate is decidedly more pro-abortion so the House version is unlikely to survive in that chamber. Nevertheless, it’s a small step in the right direction.
